    Probably make something in flutter or react native, only test it on iOS, and then click "build for android" button and release it without any testing

      is there a non-pixelated version of this? best I could find is 720, but I'm quite sure I've seen 1080 with higher bitrate somewhere in the past

      Not op but considering qml for android. I use it on the desktop and its Nice. On android I've tried the xml ui which is horrible to write and refuse to touch compose because everything that scrolls in any compose app is full of stutters. How does qt compare?

        I'm beginner so what I'm gonna say perhaps doesn't hold merit.
        As far as I know, if Krita is anything to go by I'll say it is good. The crazy devs made a 1 to 1 port into android, the only feature I've seen missing is the Python user plugins/scripts is disabled

          krita is qtwidgets based, I'm asking about qtquick, thanks though.

          Should be slightly worse than Views/XML on average but still comfortably ahead of cross platform stuff

          >but still comfortably ahead of cross platform stuff
          you got a source on that? I hate compose shit because all scroll views have microstutters. Flutter usually won't reach the device fps for me and idk about qt. Views/XML has had the best perf ive seen by a landslide, especially on old hardware.

            widgets: the original form of qt. You write everything fully in c++ and its entirely software rendered (you can't usually tell because its a very good software renderer).

            quick: A new api that's gone through a few iterations. It uses separate .qml files to lay out the ui with optional javascript expressions and a new primarily hardware based renderer. Its geared more towards being cross platform and supporting things like animation, and way faster to develop with along with being easier to style. I primarily use quick.

            Both have good enough perf not to notice on the desktop.

            isn't there a way to precompile qml files?

          • 1 week ago
            Anonymous

            There is but its limited and doing more than bytecode precompilation is locked behind a commercial license and is rather unstable iirc.
            Either way its been fast enough on the desktop with no precomp that I'm not bothered by it.

            widgets has been hardware accelerated for many years now. the software renderer is only an outdated fallback at this point.

            Really? I was under the impression it doesn't touch the QSG and QPainter is entirely software

    Flutter is ok but then you have to learn dart which is kinda ass. Fine if you *only* want to make a android add.

    Otherwise you should probably make a electron app, and make it available on web too. Just avoid framework bloat (like react) and JS is more than fast enough for anything you wanna do.

      yeah this is the best answer for sure, making your app in some other framework is almost always a hacky mess and it's just a crutch to keep you from learning the right way

    The only reason to do this over a PWA is push notifications anyway since everything is sandboxed to hell and back.

    react is the easiest but all the basic features are libraries (even something as simple as accessing the phone camera doesn't have a native component) and break all the fricking time
    I switched to Kotlin for my sanity. It's not as easy but it just werks

    I've been using Capacitor recently to cram our web app into a mobile app. I wouldn't recommend it but it's alright.
    Native is king and always will be.
    I prefer XML + MVP over Jetpack compose
